They have really helped me to broaden my professional knowledge and understanding in a number of key practice areas. My preceptor, other pharmacists at work and customers have, several times, given me very positive feedback on my application of clinical knowledge, clinical judgement and
thoroughness of customer counselling and interactions.” JL
